Publisher Comments:

No one knows the world like National Geographic—and in this lavish volume, we reveal our picks for the world's most fabulous journeys, along with helpful information for readers who want to try them out.

Compiled from the favorite trips of National Geographic's travel writers, Journeys of a Lifetime spans the globe to highlight the best of the world's most famous and lesser known sojourns. It presents an incredible diversity of possibilities, from ocean cruises around Antarctica to horse treks in the Andes. Every continent and every possible form of transport is covered.

A timely resource for the burgeoning ranks of active travelers who crave adventurous and far-flung trips, Journeys of a Lifetime provides scores of creative ideas: trekking the heights of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania... mountain biking in Transylvania... driving through the scenic highlands of Scotland... or rolling through the outback on Australia's famous Ghan train... and dozens of other intriguing options all over the world.

Journeys of a Lifetime also features 22 fun Top 10 lists in all sorts of categories. What are the world's top 10 elevator rides, bridges to walk across, trolley rides, ancient highways, or underground walking adventures? Readers will love evaluating and debating the selections.

Each chapter showcases stunning photography, full-color maps, evocative text, and expert advice—including how to get there, when to visit, and how to make the most of the journey—all packaged in a luxurious oversize volume to treasure for years to come.

This is a #1 hit and everyone should own a copy. The diversity of listings is what makes this book so extraordinary. It doesn't get caught up in one area, and generally only selects journeys that people of any age could enjoy. There's not a single rotten apple in the 500. The page design is simple, so the reader is not overwhelmed. You get just enough information that leads you to do more research. I've probably thumbed through every travel book released in the last 15 years and this is the best publication by anyone since National Geographic's 50 Trips of a Lifetime magazine. I have been on over 100 of the journeys in the book. I can't wait to register the next two or three this fall. Buy this for friends, family, and expecially for students graduating high school or college. This is a book that they can keep a lifetime.
